Hello,

I'm running Windows 10 on my workstation with Active Directory tools installed. However, when I try to install the Kerio Active Directory Extension, to manage the mailsettings from withing "Active Directory Users and Computers" it says this:
Active Directory for Kerio Connect requires Windows Server or client with server administration tools installed.

Hower I've already installed this: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=455 20

It seems that the extension does not work on Windows 10 I guess? Is there some work around for this?

Kerio Active Directory Extension installation is tested only on Windows Server.
Is your Windows 10 computer a member of AD domain?

Yes, my Windows 10 workstation is a member of an AD domain. With Windows 8.1 the extension did work.

Sorry for bumping; just to let you know it still doesn't work with the Kerio extension 9.0.1.

I've found a workaround.

  1. Download the extension.
  2. Empty your %TEMP% folder.
  3. Start the installer, until it stops (don't close the installer).
  4. Go to %TEMP% it will contain a new folder in the format {9E1CE3A9-4C6F-458B-B52D-AFE7A5AFFF21}
  5. Copy the contents from this folder to another folder
  6. You now have files, including in a folder PRogram Files64, open this folder and it's subfolders
  7. At the end you will find KmsADExt.dll file. Put it in c:\windows\system32 (Or alternative, copy the folder structure to c:\program files)
  8. Open a command prompt with Administrative tasks
  9. Go to where you have dropped the dll-file
  10. Enter this command:
    regsvr32 KmsADExt.dll
    


If you now (re)open Active Directory Users and Computers, and you find an user which is attached to Kerio, you will find an extra Kerio Connect Account-tab.

Quote:

Note: This solutions works as is, but it is probably unsupported. It installs the DLL that is needed but skips all the checks for supported OS and supported Remote tools.
